Steelers LB James Harrison To Have Surgery Monday

Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison revealed Friday night on his Twitter account that he will undergo offseason back surgery on Monday and will be down about 4 to 6 weeks. Harrison suffered the right shoulder injury in the team\’s playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens and head coach Mike Tomlin said after the game that Harrison would be in some discomfort for the AFC Championship game. Many players are hurrying to have offseason surgery before a potential lockout takes place and they are no longer covered by insurance. Harrison did not miss a game this year for the Steelers and recorded 100 total tackles and 11 sacks during the regular season.
